Just wondering, at your hospital, are you given any education hours or even a dollar amount that you can use to take classes or conferences? If so, how many hours and what dollar amount? I know sometimes if this benefit is offered, the amount is also different depending on if you're full time, part time and per diem.
I'm just disappointed that at my new hospital, we are only given 16 hours of ed hours for 2 years and $0 amount!! (full time)
My old hospital offers 72 hours and $2,000 to use for any travel expense, class cost, etc.
Is this rare to find at most hospitals?
Any suggestion on what to do? I love attending conferences and try to attend at least one every 2 years.
